Viking-based Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Trailer, Breakdown, Release Date

April 30, 2020: The trailer for the most-awaited video game of 2020 has been released. Ubisoft finally revealed the official trailer of the new Assassin’s Creed game: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which seems to be very graphic and gory, thereby keeping up with what the game series is most popularly known for besides, of course, good storyline.

Breaking down the trailer scene-by-scene:

Set in 9th England, the trailer kicks off with the visuals of a small settlement, inhabited by the Vikings, amongst the snow-capped mountains. We can hear the narrator describing these men as “heartless, godless barbarians,” which contradicts the visuals that roll simultaneously with the narrator’s dialogue delivery. The trailer shows the Norsemen playing around with the kids of the village and worshipping Norse god, Odin, which nullifies both the claims of the narrator of them being heartless and godless.

The lush verdant English countryside appears a lot more forgiving than the colder climates the Norsemen came from, so it is not hard to see why they would want to relocate after all warmer weather favors farming and hunting.

The Vikings, most certainly, do not “murder and kill blindly”, but rather spare women and children, as shown in the trailer. It seems like when they are not waging war. They’d spend time with their families, raise kids, and build nice communities.

The narrator is later revealed to be King Alfred of Wessex famous for fighting off Viking invasions. The crosses Alfred’s wearing is actually the sigil of the house of Wessex, but it bears a close resemblance to the Templar emblem.

Towards the final part of the trailer, the Vikings commander is seen to have spotted Odin, the Norse god of war, on the battlefield. Believing it to be a good omen, he takes on a mighty English soldier clad in a much durable and almost invulnerable armor only to beaten up by him. Moments before the soldier attempts to behead the Vikings commander, it is at this moment that we see him wielding the iconic hidden blade and stabbing the soldier right in the eye, dropping him dead.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set to launch in Holiday 2020 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
